Holiday Makeup Inspiration

Now that the holiday season is in full swing, people are beginning to go crazy with decorations, ugly sweaters and the official color scheme of the season—red and green—are showing up everywhere.

One way you can incorporate the Christmas season is with your makeup. But, there’s a fine line. You don’t want to make it look like you threw tinsel all over your face.

Try out these few products for the prefect balance of holiday spirit in your next beauty look.


A subtle green smoky eye will give you that Christmas tree glow you’re looking for so your eyes really pop. Use Covergirl Enhancer Eyeshadow in Snow Blossom all over your eyes to highlight and brighten eyes, including the brow line. Then, in the corner of your eyes, blend L’Oreal Infalliable Eyeshadow in Golden Emerald. Add black LashBlast by CoverGirl for the mascara and you’re eyes are done, no harsh eyeliner necessary. Keep it simple so the look isn’t too overplayed.


The lips will be the center of attention of this beauty look. Maybelline ColorSensational Lipcolor in Red Revival is the perfect holiday shade of red. Make sure to go over the edge of your lips with a Q-Tip so the lines are smooth and even. A perfect, kissable look for the getting stuck under the mistletoe.

That’s it – all of these products can be found at CVS downtown. Have fun this holiday season with makeup for more inspiration.
